TV show description:
This gritty crime drama is based on the long-running UK series of the same name.
NYPD homicide Detective Jane Timoney (Maria Bello) is a tough-as-nails outsider who’s just been transferred to a new squad — a place where her new colleagues already dislike her. Jane is confident and focused but also rude, abrupt, and occasionally reckless. She has her vices, and rumors of a questionable past follow her everywhere. At the end of the day, she’s an instinctively brilliant cop who can’t be distracted from the only important thing: tracking down the prime suspect.
Despite the praises from Lieutenant Kevin Sweeney (Aidan Quinn), Jane is passed over for top cases and is sent to handle menial tasks. His support does little to quell the rumors that her somewhat checkered past includes sleeping her way into a job on their squad. Not content to sit back and take it, she takes the bull by the horns and charges forward.
Detective Reg Duffy (Brian F. O’Byrne) is particularly outspoken about his dislike for Jane and clearly has some of his own inner-demons. Others in the squad include Detective Augie Blando (Tim Griffin), former football player Detective Luisito Calderon (Kirk Acevedo), and Detective Evrard Velerio (Damon Gupton), a longtime friend of Jane’s and a new member of the homicide department.
Outside of the department, Jane has the support of Matt Webb (Toby Stephens in the pilot, afterward Kenny Johnson), her divorced contractor boyfriend, and her father Desmond Timoney (Peter Gerety), a vibrant senior citizen.
Episode 13 — Stuck in the Middle with You
Jane and the team find out that an imprisoned hit man may be responsible for the latest drive-by at local store. Sweeney orders 24 hour a day security when a hit is ordered on one of their own. Also, Jane is a third wheel on an uncomfortable date.
First aired: January 22, 2012.
